Meet our Co-Founder, Kokomon Clottey

Kokomon Clottey is a celebrated and accomplished individual, whose many successes are diverse in medium and subject. Despite the different approaches Kokomon’s projects take, they each carry a perpetual theme in their objective: to make the world a better place by bringing people together in the cultivation of peace.

As a founder of Attitudinal Healing Center (AHC) with his partner, Aeeshah Clottey, Kokomon’s practice is community oriented, and always strives to work with those around him in bettering our world.

Born into the Ga-Adagbe tribe in Accra, Ghana, Kokomon’s sense of spirituality and knowledge of ancient rituals is deeply intertwined in his work. Now residing as an active community leader in Oakland, California, Kokomon unifies indigenous wisdom of the Ga tribe with the culture of his hometown today.

Kokomon applies his wisdom and teachings through music. He teaches and hosts the ancient practice of Mindful Drumming, a community act of meditation, collective healing and personal wellness at the AHC headquarters in West Oakland. He is also an accomplished musician, having mastered a variety of instruments and producing multiple records which feature his beautiful songwriting and unique style.

As an author, Kokomon wrote and published, Mindful Drumming, Ancient Wisdom for Unleashing the Human Spirit and Building Community.  He co-authored Beyond Fear, with his wife Aeeshah Clottey.

They contributed a chapter to the book, Imagine - What America Could be in the 21st Century: Visions of a Better Future From Leading American Thinkers, edited by Marianne Williamson. Kokomon also produced two compact discs, Love Is the Answer and Mystic Vision and recently produced a bold new compact discs, Quest which he will gift to every one who comes to the AHC’s upcoming Gala on Saturday, November 5th, 2016.   

To name all of Kokomon Clottey’s accomplishments would take a book itself, what is written here is just the tip of the iceberg. Above all else, Kokomon carries a message of hope and healing, through teaching children, through celebrating the arts, through music and literature. By incorporating ancient rituals of his ancestors in a contemporary context, Kokomon creates an authentic perspective of how peace and healing can be achieved through forgiveness in the years to come. Oakland celebrates his legacy of wisdom, his founding of AHC, and his teachings of peace, healing and love through the arts.


Kokomon welcomes you to attend AHC's 27th Anniversary Gala.
